Measurements shipping units
Airfreight shipments can be sent by passenger plane, combi plane or cargo plane. If possible, shipments are sent along with a passenger aircraft, because it’s often cheaper and faster than shipping by cargo plane. Moreover, passenger flights fly more often and go to any destination imaginable. Cargo planes often commute just between large and popular import and export destinations. The precondition for shipments that go along with passenger flights is that the pallets with goods can be no taller than 160 centimeters, otherwise they do not fit in the plane. At combined flights and regular cargo planes, the sizes for shipments are a bit larger; at these flights, pallets with goods are allowed to be up to 240 centimeters.
It is recommended that a shipment over 160 centimeters tall is not shipped on one pallet, but to divide the shipment over multiple pallets to ensure that the height of pallers remain under 160 centimeters. In such cases it is often faster and cheaper to send two (or more) pallets on a passenger flight than one pallet per cargo plane. If you still have doubts or questions regarding the shipping units, please contact our airfreight polanners, they are more than happy to advise you.
